King Ozymandias of Assyria was running low on cash after years of war
with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates ,
the most valuable diamond in the ancient world. Desperate, he went to
Croesus, the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan.

Croesus said, "I''ll give you 100,000 dinars for it."


"But I paid a million dinars for it," the King protested.
"Don''t you know who I am? I am the king!"
Croesus replied, "When you wish to pawn a Star, makes no difference who you
are."
